Hello Product Hunters! Over the last several months, the Tidelift team has engaged with over 1000 professional developers and open source maintainers through surveys and live conversations. We wanted to learn what’s working for them and what’s not. Turns out, people had a lot on their minds. We’ve digested their feedback, and have used it to inform what we think can become a more sustainable model for open source software. A way for professional software developers to get open source software they can depend on, and open source maintainers to get fairly compensated for their work. At the core of this model is something we are calling the Tidelift Subscription, which is available today.
